Developers across the nation are constructing or substantially rehabilitating Multifamily High Rise (MFHR) buildings to earn the ENERGY STAR, improving building quality and occupant comfort while lowering energy demand and reducing air pollution. Become an ENERGY STAR MFHR Developer Partner and demonstrate your commitment to energy-efficient, quality buildings.
Each ENERGY STAR certified multifamily mid and high rise building is designed to be 15% more energy efficient than a building built to the 2007 ASHRAE 90.1 standard. Multifamily mid and high rise buildings can earn the ENERGY STAR using either the Performance or Prescriptive Path.
Learn more about which buildings are eligible to earn the ENERGY STAR through the Multifamily High Rise Program.
Follow these steps to certify buildings through the ENERGY STAR Multifamily High Rise Program.
A number of tools and resources including the Simulation Guidelines and Testing & Verification Protocols are available to help program participants meet the MFHR program requirements through both paths.
